The Ernest J. Gaines Center at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette was among the 2014 LEH Rebirth Grant recipients. LEH support provided funds to cover stipends for teachers attending this summer’s Second Annual Ernest J. Gaines Summer Teaching Institute.
The institute will be held June 8-June 12, 2015 from 8:00am-12:00pm each day. The main goal of the institute is to provide area educators with the opportunity to explore, research, and discuss works by Ernest J. Gaines ,while focusing on how to bring the information garnered from the institute back to their own classrooms. To accomplish this, the institute will feature lectures from Dr. Marcia Gaudet and Dr. Darrell Bourque.
The deadline to apply is March 18. Click here to learn more.
